Help with the garden at Searchlight

Tue 18 May 18:30 pm
Searchlight Centre , Kingston Rd, New Malden, KT3 3RX
Allow members of Mencap to use the garden in small groups

Michelle at Searchlight/ Mencap has reached out for some Good help with the garden area.

She needs some assistance tidying and cutting grass at the Searchlight centre so the members of Mencap can meet in small groups outside where it is safe and stop many being isolated at home. The task will be weeding, cutting grass and general tidying of the area.

It maybe a bit more overgrown than we have seen in the past so a great before and after photo op maybe?

Don't forget the gloves

Michelle's number should you need on route is 07745814050

Painting the Holy Rail - If it rains then don't be brassed off!

Sat 8 May 10:30 am
St John the Evangelist, , Grove Ln, , Kingston upon Thames , KT1 2SU
Help to brighten up the look of a great community Kingston Church

We have helped at St. John the Evangelist before and they have asked if we would like to assist them again. They need hands to help finish paint the fence on the outside of the church.

Plenty of space for social distance as we work.

Should be a great upper body workout, some might say simply DIVINE!

Task owner will be Mark and if you need to contact him on the morning then 077307 99609 is the best number 😊

If it rains then plenty of brass to be polished and tidying indoors possible!

Bring any gloves you may wish to wear for yourself and a mask in case indoors happens

Well done giving this one a go!

It was super to see the smiley faces and the positive thumbs up. Some great scenic photos too so thanks for sharing - Bushy Park and Kew Gardens in the sunshine!!

Even a cockapoo got involved but of course he couldn't do thumbs up but wagging a tail counts all the same

Super training ; - )

take a photo of a fellow GG member .... who gives a thumbs up

SO like a long winter snow the restrictions are slowly melting and as such we are now allowed to meet one other outside socially.

A little more incentive to brush some winter fitness cobwebs off maybe is to arrange with another to meet at a park/open space and run together (as guidelines permit) or simply have a good long walk.

Get busy on WhatsApp and see what you can come up with but what would be good is too see some smiley GG faces on the group or mailed to me for a report so we can start to see us getting out there again. Only thumbs up photos will be shared ; - )

You choose the place, the time that suits and if you cannot get a GG member to join you then how about a friend not tried the GG experience and you can use the time to tell them about Goodgym!!

For those looking for more of a fitness challenge then cycle to meet point, run off the bike with the friend and then add some faster sprint races at the end of your meet before the photo (but don't forget to stretch of course!!)

Report written by Sian Dobson Hughes

*What a breeze! *

On Saturday 20th Feb, 37 GoodGym runners from up and down the country (and even overseas!) battled the breeze and smashed through their 5 kilometers (not) parkrun training session.

Once again, a massive thanks to Melanie Young @ GoodGym Bristol (a very savvy computer person ) for creating the results form and who has been putting the results together for our (not) parkruns.

Want to put the wind back in your sails?

#notparkrun, but definitely #goodgymredthunder

Sat 13 Feb
Report written by Simon Fitzmaurice

37 Goodgym runners and walkers submitted times and photos for Week 6 of the official Goodgym #notparkrun event (hosted by Goodgym Islington this time). Our brave souls got outside despite the cold and snow covering more areas of the UK, and logged some very impressive times and wonderful photos to show for it!

Top props go to Marianne for battling a mighty headwind on Bournemouth prom for her 5km time, Stockport AA Sian putting in an impressive run with a 30 week baby bump and David and Lenka sharing their winter wonderland photos of their super snowy #not parkrun in Prague. It looks really idyllic, and I am not jealous in the slightest...

Once again, a massive thanks to Melanie Young @ GoodGym Bristol (a very savvy computer person ) for creating the results form and who has been putting the results together for our (not) parkruns.

Week 7 of the Goodgym #notparkrun adventure will be hosted by Sian and the wonder crew at Goodgym Stockport.
